the textile is really beautiful. where is this shop located?
the jacket and the bags look great. i hope you don't mind but how much do they cost?
how much would a yathra gho cost also? i bought a gho but it's not hand-woven.

Arcibald, Well the Shop is In Bumthang Chumey Valley, I am Not Sure whether you can get from the Handicraft and textile shop in Thimphu, the price ranges Depending on the Quality of the Materials. The Overcoat is around Nu 1700 - 2500 and the Bag is Nu 300 - Nu 500,

Well Woven Ghos are bit Expensive compared to the Machine Made and it might cost you around 2000 to Maximum Depending on the Quality and the Patterns.

Can I ask you for a favour? If you happen to be back in Thimphu, could you please take some pictures for me of a Bhutanese supermarket, anyone will do, and put it up, or otherwise, send it to my email? You know my email, mosh! i need a super-market sort of store, and not the "general shops" type of grocery store picture for my project... so sorry for the trouble, and thanks in advance.
Sorry about the bother,and it just seems best to ask you, since you seem to be putting pictures of bhutan and Thimphu every now and then mosh! :-))
Kadinchey, and Gom matey mey. :-))

Oh Ugyen! I knew I could depend on you. Thank you so much for accepting my request. I have been going nuts trying to find pictures of a Bhutanese supermarket online, and not coming up with anything. Even kuensel did not have the picture in their archives, though several years ago, I remember them doing an article with picture about Bhutan's first super market...:-)) Anyway, all i managed to find were piles and piles of weekend market pictures. No sign of the modern society...:-))
Thanks again for saying "yes". You've saved me a pile of trouble.

Anyway, I owe you one.
Thank you again,
